My goal is to publish new posts twice a week — Mondays and Thursdays. However, if you don’t see a new post on Thursday, it’s because I was too busy, so please look for a new one the following Monday.
We’ve been busy lately, buying up a storm for our upcoming shows in the Greater Chicago area, starting next week. Some of our superb purchases came from a very successful European buying trip last week. We’ve pumped up our already fine collection of Tiffany glass and lamps and French cameo glass. I photographed all of our newest treasures, but it’s time-consuming to put them on my website, so they’ll get added day by day. Please check frequently for additions. Click here for the home page of my site.
New additions of Gallé, Daum and Argy-Rousseau glass will be on the site soon, including a Gallé hyacinth blownout vase with exceptional color. I was offered four different Gallé hyacinth blownout vases and chose to purchase only this one, because it was hands-down the best. Also coming are Gallé scenic and floral vases, Daum spider web vases and a fine Argy-Rousseau pate-de-verre geometric vase.
Tiffany Favrile glass vases are well-represented in the newest selection. Two of them are deep blue with green hearts and vines decoration — both small and wonderful. Several green decorated Favrile vases are also in the newest group.
You can view our entire inventory, including all of our new items, starting next Friday, April 19th, at the Chicago Antiques & Garden Fair, Chicago Botanic Garden, 1000 Lake Cook Road, Glencoe, IL. It will be our first time there. Hopefully the show will be good for us, so we can make it a regular show on our schedule. We have many clients in the greater Chicago area, so if a show fails, we need a replacement. The show opens to the public on Friday, April 19th, at 10 AM, and continues until Sunday, April 21st, at 5 PM, so you’ll have plenty of time for a visit. Click here for more information about the show.
The week after the Chicago Antiques & Garden Fair, we’ll be exhibiting in downtown Chicago at the fabulous Merchandise Mart International Antiques Fair. Make sure you come to one or both of the shows. You will not be disappointed!

Look around my website. There are many items for sale, sold items with prices and free lessons about glass and lamps. I regularly add Tiffany vases, lamps and desk accessories, as well as French cameo glass by Galle and Daum Nancy and etchings by Louis Icart. Here’s the link. Philip Chasen Antiques.
